  • Set Up
  • Variation
  • Catastrophic Event
  • In this rural area, we have a squirrel looking for a nut to eat. However, he runs into his most common predator, the Dingo.
  • In a new environment
  • There are two type of squirrels. The first variation is on the left, which is known as the aggressive squirrel. It's red fur is telling. The one on the right is the brown squirrel. They love nuts.
  • Population Changes
  • In this catastrophic event, a group of dingo gang up to ambush and feast upon the entire squirrel population. However, these squirrels catch on and split up to safety.
  • New Species
  • Due to the natural earth tones of the brown squirrel, they are able to camouflage well in this new environment of brown trees. Unfortunately the brighter, vivid red squirrel is easy to pick out by predators.
  • Sadly, the red squirrel population dwindled over time. While they dwindled, the brown squirrel population flourished. 
  • These brown squirrels flourished and reproduced amongst themselves so much that they essentially became a new species, not able to reproduce with even the red squirrel population.
